security, were they to get that big, grand bargain. even if they don't, there may be changes to entitlement programs. on the other side, democrats wanted to see tax increases and a small set of people with very little infrut the larger set of member of congress making a deal behind closed doors and there won't be a lot of time for the public to assess that before members of congress are asked to vote on it and that might have the affect on the ability of the house speaker and harry reid to actually pass a debt ceiling increase once some sort of agreement is made. >> i was reading this today in the "new york times," david. i'm going to give this to you. nearly three dozen house republicans and another dozen in the senate joined most of the republican presidential candidates in signing a pledge that will not, that they will not vote to support the debt limit increase unless congress approved a balanced budget amendment to the constitution which is unlike -- okay. most people agree, every economist, every economist of weight will say, by doing this they are possibly spooking the markets, and f

speaker john boehner today. not going for a big huge deal now. this is part of what chuck schumer had to say -- >> shannon: your response? >> i suspect that is more of the grand politics that you hear playing out there. because it was never put on the table. the kind of reform that john boehner has been asking for, the kind of reform i'm talking about. what was put on the table was again, tax hikes on the wealthy. so that we can do less spending reduction. we've got to get out of that paradigm. we've got to get out of the politics. some of the politics poll really well. one of the problem we're having now is pollsters are at full employment. and politicians are following what they are telling them. it's telling them on the one hand don't put social security or medicare on the table. don't talk about those things. on the other hand, just talk about taxing the rich. you will be fine. but that doesn't help us get to a solution. >> shannon: we certainly hope that you find one. we know you are busy not only with the gang of six or five or whatever it currently stands to be but with everyth
about washington. we have to do this. we have to get to some sort of big deal. the fallback position a more modest position. $2.5 trillion over ten years. still real money, but something far less than this grander barga bargain that was being discussed that mike was referring to. they are pretty far apart here and this was a big setback. >> i hate to say winners and losers here because this deal isn't done, is the president going to win this round? >> we don't know yet because from the republican point of view, this effort to raise ta s taxes, raise revenues has just been a nonstarter. they have a tea party that is against that and a republican process under way where the dominant theme is against any kind of tax increases. be sure about one thing. the president wanted to come out here and get a big deal, so that he could say, look, i swept in at the end and i was the one that lead us to an agreement that really cut spending massively. he got re-election on his mind. that's definitely how he wants to position himself for that. >> again, august 2nd is the date. $14.3 trillion. a lot

industry. >> i'm glad you asked that. this is a big subject in the book. one of the things that interested me very deeply was that in addition to being the first war to have destructiveness at this level, the first world war was the first propaganda war. why? because up to that point in time in europe in the proceeding several decades, all the wars had been fairly small war colonial conflicts where small volunteer armies went out and put down rebellions in africa or asia or whatever. it didn't require a propaganda effort. you know, certain writers like roger kipling could be counted on to supply the proper kind of poetry and story telling when needed to be, but there wasn't anything organized by the government, but right from the beginning, they seemed to realize that this war was going to require a massive propaganda effort. this was especially true in england, and it was another reason that led me to concentrate on england in the book because along the major powers of europe, they did not have conscription. they still had an all-volunteer army, so whipping up the necessary enthusiasm, th
